About American Speckle Park Association
Bob and his wife Kristal are a first-generation farming family. They are the owners/operators of Golden Leaf Speckle Park in Chatham, Virginia. Bob has always been involved in production agriculture and in 2003 he was able to purchase his great-grandfather's farm. Throughout the years, the Harris family diversified their tobacco farming operation to include cattle, industrial hemp, small grains, and a Perdue poultry house.
In 2018, Bob was introduced to Speckle Park cattle and immediately developed a passion for the breed. The family began the process of rebranding the farm and moving away from row crops to primarily a Speckle Park beef operation. Incorporating the past, tobacco, and the future, Speckle Park cattle, the family renamed their farming operation Golden Leaf Speckle Park.
